Complicated standards and plug types can often lead to confusion when planning to visit another country especially if you've never been there before. With only a handful of different types of plug sockets used in the world this article shows exactly what you'll need in advance to charge the Kindle Fire . If you are visiting Uzbekistan the following useful instructions show how to supply power to the Kindle Fire by using the Type I or C Uzbekistani 220 volt 50Hz power outlets. You will discover power will vary regionally therefore we recommend reading the Asia and power supplies page for a full list of countries. When you are visiting Uzbekistan from another country double check the Kindle Fire can accept a 240v supply. If it was purchased in a country which uses a lower voltage such as 110 volts check that your Kindle Fire is dual-voltage (indicated by 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional power transformer to stop the device from being damaged whilst powering it up.

This guide shows how to connect the Uzbekistani power outlet to the Kindle tablet. These instructions assume you are using the most recent version of the Fire OS operating system for the Kindle tablet, but if you don't we recommend installing the most recent Kindle Fire software update to ensure you have the most up to date fixes for your tablet.
